Disabling the main form during startup of a VB 6 app
Posted on 2007-03-23
My VB6 app runs a splash screen that calls the main form. The main form involves a lot of processing before it's ready for user interaction.
I'm trying to set the main form to enabled = false for about 8 seconds to cover the processing period. This is easily done once the form is fully visible and its processing is done. But that doesn't meet the need to prevent premature user interaction during the initial processing, and I can't find a workaround either for the splash screen or during the main form loading period.
Suggestions for solutions gratefully received.
